02.15.2012 – WKA officials have announced the addition of CIK bodywork into the RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series, effective the first event of the season, the March 1-3 Barnes Paving Nationals at 103rd Street Sports Complex in Jacksonville, Florida.
The decision came as a result of discussion by the Gold Cup Competition Committee, and unanimously endorsed by the WKA Board of Trustees.
The use of CIK style bodywork will be legal in all Gold Cup classes and must meet the criteria listed in section 200/208 of the 2012 WKA Tech Manual.
It also must be noted that a mix of Gold Cup and CIK bodywork is legal as long as the respective pieces used follow the applicable rules for that style bodywork being used, e.g., traditional Gold Cup Nose Cone used with CIK style side pods is legal.
Attn: 2 Cycle Gold Cup Competitors: Competitors in the Gold Cup X30 Senior, X30 Junior and Komet Sportsman will be required to follow the same specs as in the Manufacturer’s Cup Series specifically with regards to bodyworks, chassis, and engine specs.
